Ownership and rates infoproviders for RTC

Hello Experts,

We are implementing a RTC solution for the first time and we have a doubt regarding the Ownership and Rates infoproviders.

Checking some the documentation we found that those two should be Real-time cubes and we were about to build them when we read this forum where it is mentioned that they could be a real-time info cubes or aDSOs, so now we are a little bit confused.

https://answers.sap.com/questions/323245/doubts-to-implement-ownership-and-rates-model-for.html

We are working on BW 7.5.1 SP 2, BPC 10.1 embedded. Our questions are:

1. Which one should we use?

2. In case both are valid. What should be the criteria for deciding to use one or the other?

Thank you.

Bibiana.

    Hi,

    When working with HANA aDSO and composite providers (CP) are highly recommended. In fact these objects are replacing InfoCube and multiproviders because they can consume data from HANA views directly.

    • Hi,

      Using open DSO view and ADSO is the further of BW. However, as of now we are not giving any official recommendation to our customer which BW objects to use. Of the three models used for RTC, only consolidation has to be real time, and the majority of our customers are using ADSO and CP. This is different in case of ownership and exchange rate models. They are not real time, so it is optional to have them use ADSO. Furthermore, as of now I am not aware if anyone using open DSO instead of virtual provider. I do hope you find this information helpful.

    Hi Bibiana,

    For the rates we are using a virtual info cube that fetches data straight from tcurr. The reading is done by an ABAP class.

    Ownership we used real-time cubes (as described in the SAP documentation). Looking at it now, I'd probably use aDSOs, but to be honest, I personally don't reckon that you'd find a big difference if you consider that the Ownership info is quite steady and usually does not represent a big volume of data.

    Cheers,

    Lucas

    Hi,

    I received some further details. BW PAK cannot do planning based on open ODS view and CDS views. For that reason RTC cannot use them. However, with ownership and exchange rate I think aDSO will work.
